Could you instead be talking about setting a delay time for how long to wait to apply archive logs to a dataguard standby? If so you can use grid to set that time to whatever you want. Just look for the prod database in gris go into availability and configure and there is a screen where you can set the delay. It should still ship the log file immediately, it will wait as long as you want before applying the archive log though.
